Celtic fans react as club reportedly in talks for Tottenham star, as per Fabrizio Romano
Celtic are reportedly in talks to land Joe Hart this summer. The ex-England goalkeeper has fallen down the pecking order at Tottenham – and has been told he can leave. The signing of Pierluigi Gollini makes him expendable, and Celtic fans have responded to reports their club are in talks for Hart.
The Hoops need a new goalkeeper. Vasilis Barkas has been a car crash since joining Celtic in the summer of 2020 from AEK Athens, while Scott Bain and Conor Hazard are back-up options – but certainly far from the quality required to be first choice. Hart, then, could be an option this summer.
What are Celtic fans saying about signing Tottenham man Hart?
Fabrizio Romano reported on Twitter that Celtic had entered talks to sign Hart. The 75-time England man is now in the final year of his contract, having joined Spurs in June 2020 on a two-year deal. Last season, £52k-a-week – or £2.7m-a-year – Hart (Spotrac) only played 10 times for Spurs.
Now, new sporting director Fabio Paratici has brought in Pierluigi Gollini on an intial loan deal that is more than likely to become permanent. Football London even claim Hart has been told he can go. But what do Celtic fans think about signing Hart? Well, the majority are all for his arrival.
